Can't wait to get mine ordered it this week. Just wondering how some of you are going to get it to float so when you have it on the jig the back end stands up. I use do-its plastic and it sinks so the bait won't stand up.

Not sure what you're talking about. I use Do-its ES plastic and they float like a bobber.

I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

Looks like the baits in the pic are hug up on the sides of the glass.

 LOL ! that is not the case. If you add salt or glass media it will sink. But just straight plastic it floats.

Lamar and I went fishing this morning, of course in Lamar's nice boat.
I can vouch for Lamar, those baits aren't on the glass, they are in fact floating.  I stirred them in that glass and they popped back up to the surface.

I know right ? I do believe the old Do-it plastic would sink. But not the new ES plastic. They float.

The crystal clear soft formula floats real nice as long as the jig weight isn't unreasonable. My Essential is more neutrally buoyant but a stand alone bait will support itself in water.

I don't fish this bait but I fish the jig and the jig stands plastics up fairly well.
